A couple of years ago I bought about 3,000 floppy disks from a guy in Los Angeles who once ran a PC shareware company. Many of the disks contained shareware downloads from various BBSes in that area, mostly from the late 80s to about 1994. Knowing their historical value, I copied the files off several hundred of these floppies for the sake of history before succumbing to fatigue.As far as I know this is all shareware or freeware, roughly organized into whatever BBS they downloaded it from....

This is a collection of images Apple II floppy disks sent to Jason Scott in 2015. Using the ADT (Apple Disk Transfer) program, which utilizes a vintage Apple IIe and a floppy drive. Effort was taken to produce as accurate a read of the floppies as possible, resulting in .DSK files that contain the data from the floppies. (These are sector-based readings, and contain the directory structure and file information. If a disk has unusual or secret items, they may not have been grabbed). The... Topics: Apple II, Floppies

The first version of PCBoard was released in 1983. Clark Development Company (CDC) pioneered the FILE ID.DIZ format as well as a powerful scripting language (PPL), which supported modifications and to a large degree replacement of most standard commands and processes. A compiled interpreter script written in PPL was called PPE (PCBoard Programming Executable). PPEs were generated by the PCBoard Programming Language Compiler (PPLC), which was an optional tool provided by Clark Development...
From the MAME Forums: "Years ago we had a forum member named oNyX who used to go around to arcade auctions and California Extreme type events and take pictures of cabs for MAME use. He also collected pictures and info from ebay auctions around the time (2000-2003ish). It became several gigabytes and was shared through a couple of FTPs for certain groups. Eventually most of it went up on a MAMEfans website but not in a way where you could just download it all. I've tossed a few other...

The files in this archive are taken from the file section of The Cave BBS of Raleigh, NC, USA. From December 1992 to February 9th, 1998, I ran a one-node WWIV BBS in Raleigh, NC, USA called "The Cave BBS." At its height it had over 1000 users, although definitely not all were active at once. The BBS was members of FIITA net, SWIPEnet, and CaveNet WWIV message networks at one time or another. I started with the BBS software WWIV 4.21a and slowly upgraded to WWIV 4.24a over the years,...
In 1998, Jason Scott, a child of the quickly-fading Bulletin Board System (BBS) era in computer communication, checked the then-seemingly-infinite World Wide Web to see what it had to say and show about these single-line online services he had used since the early 1980s. Shocked to find that very little had made it online, he assembled his personal collection of textfiles, archives and memorabilia and began a site called TEXTFILES.COM, intending it to be a living museum of the early days of the...
